5% chance when an ender pearl lands
Endermites have a 5% chance to spawn when an ender pearl lands when thrown by a player. The endermite spawns where the player threw the pearl, not where the pearl lands.
Endermites attack players (and iron golems[Bedrock Edition only]) within 16 blocks of them. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area become hostile toward that mob. They can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.[Bedrock Edition only]
Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, except for when they have been named with a name tag.
Endermites, along with Silverfish, are not all too dangerous, but are considered a nuisance at best because they can be difficult to hit, due to their small hitbox, quick movement speed, and oftentimes unpredicatble movement patterns. Endermites pose almost no threat, as even a totally unarmoured player is safe from one, as they do minimal attack damage, and can be outran or punched to death easily. Endermites currently have basically zero use, outside of Enderman farms. Aside from that, they could be called "useless", as they have no meaningful drops, and they are so rare that most players don't even know they exist. However, due to how weak and small they are, an Endermite (and by extension, Silverfish) could potentially be kept as a pet, provided it is kept in an enclosed area, and named with a nametag, or else it will despawn.
Endermen can target an endermite from up to 64 blocks away.
